The Rushcliffe Charity Summer Fair- Concert to raise money for Education for the Children, the Friary and Jessica Hope Foundation
Our charity fair will take place on the field on Friday 18th July from 14:15 to 16:30, entry price will be £2.00. Pupils will be able to purchase entry wrist bands from Monday 14th July and this will allow then to miss period 5 in the name of helping to raise money for La Esperanza – The School of Hope - a school in Jocotenango, Guatemala and the other two charities.
EFTC works in partnership with disadvantaged families, children and young adults in Guatemala, Central America to ensure they develop the tools they need to break free from the cycle of poverty. The Foundation has a school in Jocotenango, Guatemala: an urban area where extreme poverty, gang crime, domestic violence and alcoholism are everyday realities. Food, healthcare, counselling and career guidance at the school remove obstacles to education and enable these students to realise their potential.
